Can anyone reassure me I had news today that me hip is crumbling

I am sorry to hear this. I am sure that someone with experience of hip replacements in people over 80 will be along soon.

My mum had a new hip in her early 80’s. She was a new woman after it and she looked years younger, with the relief from the awful pain she’d had. That’s about twelve years ago and it’s still going strong, as is she. Good luck!

Onwards and forwards-but of course you'll have to put in the hard work. Bonne chance.
